rvest (version 1.0.2)

rename: Functions renamed in rvest 1.0.0

Description

[Deprecated]

rvest 1.0.0 renamed a number of functions to ensure that every function has a common prefix, matching tidyverse conventions that emerged since rvest was first created.

  • set_values() -> html_form_set()

  • submit_form() -> session_submit()

  • xml_tag() -> html_name()

  • xml_node() & html_node() -> html_element()

  • xml_nodes() & html_nodes() -> html_elements()

(html_node() and html_nodes() are only superseded because they're so widely used.)

Additionally all session related functions gained a common prefix:

  • html_session() -> session()

  • forward() -> session_forward()

  • back() -> session_back()

  • jump_to() -> session_jump_to()

  • follow_link() -> session_follow_link()
